Supporting MU Through Your Church
Manchester's values of learning, faith and service are as relevant in the 21st century as they were when the University was founded in 1889. A number of programs encourage students to explore their spirituality while pursuing their Manchester degree, and congregations are invited to support those most meaningful to them:
- Mission Partnership Fund is the church's version of the annual fund which helps to pay for financial aid, energy costs, classroom technology, maintenance of buildings and grounds, and much more.
- Peace Studies encourages students to explore the frontiers of nonviolent conflict resolution in our personal lives and international relations.
- The Pathways program allows students to explore the intersection of faith and vocation through service and places students in homeless shelters, hospices, summers camps and other venues.
- Campus Ministry creates diverse opportunities for students to deepen their faith through worship, fellowship, learning and service.
- Church Matching Scholarship Fund enables churches to directly support students from their congregations with a match from Manchester up to $500.
- Connections Scholarships worth $2,000 each year support full-time students who are Church of the Brethren members.
